If you don't follow this procedure you won't be able to use graphs and
control charts due to runtime errors (actually I don't know why).
Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
A good portion of the statistical functionality.
Opening, creating and saving worksheets and projects.
Everything that I tried File, Edit, Data, Calc, Stat menus on the main menu bar worked for me on several worksheets of sample data.
The help files (in chm format) were displayed properly. In prior versions of wine (pre 1.2), using help would cause a run exception.
What does not
Several graphical functions in the "Graph" drop down menu on the main menu bar gave fatal runtime exceptions. Also, 'options' and 'manage profiles' functions of the 'Tools' menu gave exceptions.
What was not tested
I didn't exhaustively test every stat function. The stat functions and their associated graphs worked. Creating graphs directly from the 'Graph' menu did not seem to work.
One thing in common for the above errors and runtime exceptions was the following message.
fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
Whatever methods Minitab uses to store internal parameters and preferences (sqlite or whatever) does not seem to be implemented in wine, or is otherwise throwing exceptions.
Sometimes 3D graphs' windows will not close or minimize. If you want to
minimize them go to window/minimize all; then you can restore only the
worksheet and session window. If you want to forcibily close a 3D graph
go to window/clos all graphs. This however will close every graph in

after some copying of dlls etc I got Minitab 15.1.30 working with wine 1.2.2. After many requests on missing files, I just copied all files in every directory. Up to today everything is working, one crash, but same topic as above(runtime error)
already install minitab 15.1

I already install minitab 15.1, but directly installed it. So it is not working. How to uninstall it ? I used wine uninstaller in terminal but, it cannot removed from registry and still exis. Thats why I cannot install minitab 14.1
